Webinars provide a cost effective means of reaching and engaging large, geographically-spread audiences and also very specific target groups. They give participants the opportunity to ask questions and receive live feedback during the scheduled webinar and the live recordings are then repurposed and re-delivered in the form of video, audio, slides and transcripts - available for anyone to view at a later date.
The first webinar organized by the GODAN Working Group on Capacity Development gave an overview of GODAN, its objectives and how people can get involved. The webinar also provided information on the purpose of the GODAN Working Group on Capacity Development and explained how to join and get involved in the activities.

The AgPack contains 14 key data categories and 10 examples of open data in action. The speaker highlighted use cases from India, the Netherlands and Burkina Faso.
During the webinar the speakers outlined three GODAN Action focal areas: data standards and best practices (Standards), research for impact evaluation (Research), building capacity of open data users (Capacity Development).
